Underrepresented Minorities Resources


We support the mission of the Office of Diversity and Outreach to build and support a diverse faculty, student, trainee and staff community. At UCSF our working definition of an underrepresented minority (URM) can be found here.

We also consider trainees from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, as defined by the HHS Poverty Guidelines, to be URM.

The Summary Table summarizes the resources and links to their websites. Below the table, you’ll find more detailed information.
